The NYU Abu Dhabi (NYUAD) Art Gallery will host Translation, Bodies, and Paratexts, a virtual public conversation with C.V. Starr Fellow in International Studies and Assistant Professor of Arabic at Middlebury College Dima Ayoub and artist Lee Blalock, around translation and bodies in the digital space, on Monday, May 31 at 7:30pm GMT.

The conversation will explore textual elements and paratexts, such as leetspeak and Arabic internet language. The conversation is part of the Navigating Digital Identities, a program of talks which accompanies the virtual exhibition not in, of, along, or relating to a line.

In the exhibition, nine artists and art collectives make visible both the restrictions and the freedoms of digital culture, and explore how identities and histories are created, transformed, or invented through our relationship with technology.
